Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits may be received by direct deposit or a state-issued debit card. Beginning July 9, 2016 all payments issued via debit card will be deposited to a Way2Go Card® Debit MasterCard.
Way2Go Card provides an easy, convenient and secure way to receive your Unemployment Insurance benefit payments.
It may be used anywhere MasterCard is accepted, including for online purchases and bill payments. Each debit card is embedded with an EMV chip for greater security and will include documentation with instructions on the use of the card.
Cards are mailed within 7-10 business days from the date your new claim is filed. If you do not receive one, please contact Xerox Customer Service at 1-855-462-5887.
Claimants currently receiving benefits can also enroll for debit cards or direct deposit payments online through their Jobs4TN account.
